Synopsis

Three families of different origins and social backgrounds decide to spend the Christmas holidays in Cortina d'Ampezzo, on the venetian Dolomites. The Roman lawyer Giovanni Covelli bought a chalet to celebrate the New Year with his relatives and the Colombo family, but upon their arrival the house is not yet finished. Their trusted upholsterer is on vacation, and he has sent his grandson Oscar, known as Er Cipolla, in his place. Meanwhile the Esposito family, after a huge lottery win, has also arrived in Cortina for the holidays. The new millennium turning point will be shaken by unexpected encounters, unlikely relationships, misunderstandings, attempted extortions and endless foolishness.
